This quick Dill and Yogurt Salmon is simple enough for a weeknight, but elegant enough for guests! Yogurt, dill, Dijon, and shallot make the creamy sauce!

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Seafood
Yield: 4
  • 4 salmon filets, with skin (~1-1 ½ pounds)
  • Dash salt & pepper
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh dill (~1 teaspoon dried)
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ Tablespoon chopped onion or shallot
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 400° F. Prepare a baking sheet by spraying with nonstick spray or lightly brushing with oil.

  2. Place salmon skin side down on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  3. In a small bowl, whisk together yogurt, dill, Dijon mustard, and onion (or shallot). Add salt and pepper to taste.

  4. Spread sauce over salmon (you might have extra depending on amount of salmon). Bake for approximately 10 minutes per inch of thickness or until salmon flakes easily when tested with a fork. Enjoy!

    The dill and the yogurt are a nice compliment to the salmon. I love salmon any kind of way, but my husband says it tastes too fishy! However, he loved this recipe too!!!
